From the Zillow listing:


This distinctive and charming seven-room ranch is set on .8 acres west of Mountain Road and offers amazing potential for its new owner. Set far back from the street overlooking a spacious front lawn, this home is one of five homes in a small enclave on a private lane. It has a large living room with built-in bookcases and a handsome fireplace, a formal dining room with built-in corner cabinet, and a good-sized kitchen with custom wood cabinets. The home’s four bedrooms include a master bedroom with its own full bath, and three additional bedrooms and a second full bath. There are hardwood floors throughout and a sunny, south-facing three-season room off the living room. This home boasts nine attached garages with additional generous storage above, in what were at one time the stables of the former Rentschler estate further up the street owned by Frederick Rentschler, one of the founders of Pratt & Whitney Aircraft. Ideally located, it is convenient to Bishops Corner, nearby public and private schools, and the MDC reservoir with its popular walking and hiking trails.
